The Austin Center for Photography is proud to present famed black and white photographer Larry Fink as the next speaker in our Icons of Photography lecture series on Friday, February 28, 2014, during the Texas Photo Roundup!
Fink's photographs provide the opportunity to study a gesture, a smile, a surreptitious glance, even the sweat on an arm or a wrinkle of skin- comprising a kind of desire, sensuality, disappointment, or ennui. They record the tension between one's keenly felt public identity and the inner exigencies of the emotional psyche. -Susan Kismaric, Curator of Photography, The Museum of Modern Art
With over 45 years experience, and equal renown in the commercial, editorial, and fine art spheres, Fink is truly one of the living legends of photography.
Fink has won numerous awards throughout his illustrious career (including two Guggenheim and two NEA Fellowships), his work is collected in major art museums in the US and abroard (Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of art, the Musee e la Lausanne Photographie in Belgium, and the Musee de l'Elyssee in Switzerland amongst others), and he has been the subject of at least ten books, with more to come. Fink's commercial work includes advertising compaigns for Smirnoff, Bacardi, and Cunard Lines (Q.E.2), and his work has appeared in top publications such as Vanity Fair, W, GQ, Detour, The New York Times Magazine, and The New Yorker.
In addition to his acclaim as a practitioner, Fink is also a highly experienced and influential educator. Since the late sixties he has taught at many premier art schools, and Fink is now tenured faculty at Bard College where he has taught since 1986. He was awarded an honorary doctorate from the College for Creative Studies, College of Art and Design Detroit, in 2002.
